“Farming isn’t a battle against nature, but a partnership with it. It is respecting the basics of nature in action and ensuring that they continue.” — Jeff Koehler
To All Farmers,
As another 🌾 bountiful harvest awaits us in Week 4, we continue to mature and industrialize our farming work with many partners and collaborators. In just three weeks, many have noticed what we have been doing for the defi ecosystem because of the amazing community we have. If we continue to ask places like DeFi Pulse, Zapper, and Zerion to add more complete data, it will happen.
🆕 Some of the updates this week include a CREAM collaboration, new exchange listings, and our first community Meme winner! Our community has grown to over 9,000 farmers and collectively, we have made millions in profit for farmers since launch.
🚜 In addition, we will continue to make the farmland more fertile and add FARM incentives for staking UNI pairs. We will also be incentivizing a Creamswap pool for the first time as we deepen our collaboration across the defi universe.

🤝 CREAM Collaboration
Last week, we introduced our first WETH strategy to earn yield through CREAM’s platform.
This week, we’re happy to announce the next step of our collaboration with CREAM.
Starting today, FARM holders will be able to deposit into a 80/20 ETH/FARM Pool on CREAM’s platform. In addition, if there is enough liquidity in the pool, FARM will be eligible to become a lending and borrowing asset on CREAM’s platform. In turn, Harvest will also incentivize a CRPT pool that will yield FARM for the week. You can view it under the Earn/Stake Tab.
What other DeFi projects would you like to see work with Harvest? Have your voice heard in the #defi-collaborations channel in our Discord to be a part of the conversation.
Help us talk to DeFi projects that could benefit from an integration with Harvest or fASSETs (for example if they want to provide yield-bearing stablecoin or bitcoin products in their app).
We currently have three audits in progress with one finishing up this week⏳. Status and timelines are as follows:
- Initial audit report received, there are no major findings. Preparing for the final report, hopefully to be released later this month.
- Initial sanity check performed with no serious issues found
- Full audit underway. ETA: End of September
- Initial security review performed with no serious issues found
- Full audit underway. ETA: End of September
Exchange Listings Galore:

⛳ Next stop, Binance and FTX. If we all contact them from different directions it’ll happen.
🤖 Enabling the VWAP Bot
The team has built a VWAP bot to perform automated selling of the team’s FARM treasury. The bot is programmed to minimize price impact by only selling gradually on upticks and as a small % of market volume. This algorithm minimizes market impact while making sure that the builders are paid for their efforts.
As we continue to ship new features and strategies on a daily basis, we will begin using the VWAP bot to provide the resources necessary to maintain the sustainability of Harvest Finance. This programmatic approach is one of the most sophisticated and light-touch ways to manage a treasury.

💹 Week 4 Farming Incentives :
2️⃣ In week 2, 51676.2 $FARM were issued.
4️⃣ In week 4, 24997.5 $FARM will be issued.
📉 $FARM emission in week 4 is further reduced by 19% from the planned emission in week 4 of 30824.4. We made this decision in consultation with active community members who expressed concern about the impact of high inflation rates on the long-term prospects for $FARM. After ensuring sufficient emission to bootstrap critical liquidity and incentivize capital providers, additional emission provides diminishing returns to Harvest, so we have decided to forgo this extraneous inflation.
📉 As a result, emission to the team and dev funds was also reduced by 19%. This is only 5.7% above the planned long-term emission of 23555 per week. We have stated before that the contracts allow for downward adjustments in the FARM emission rate and total supply. We are serious about doing what it takes to grow Harvest, and we are willing to take radical actions such as these emissions reductions when we are confident that they are in the best interests of the protocol.
